Clarification of use of Vendor forum
Posted 21 April 2007 - 07:31 PM
The Vendor forum is not, for the use of members to post complaints or request for guidance for settling issues with vendors.
If you have any questions concerning CN policy in such matters, kindly PM a forum moderator or an administrator for clarification of this policy.

That might clarify why the two posts I made into the shop & swap forum just dissapeared.
They weren't swap and shop posts. The heading for that forum specifies its purpose:
Classified ad section for registered members and vendor supporters to sell and swap their equipment.

Could you propose a forum where we can express our bad experiences with vendors? That might interesst the users & buyers!

However, I've only encountered one vendor who absolutely refused to act like a grownup, and PMs to Mods caused that vendor to be banned from Cloudy Nights.
If in doubt, PM your proposed post to a Mod or Admin for review and suggestions on making it acceptable. CN TOS forbids "vendor bashing", but it doesn't forbid reasoned critique of vendor performance.

Once in a while someone will post a horror story about an issue with a vendor/manufacturer, but you have to remember, we are only hearing one side of the story.
This issue would also be better addressed in the feedback area, rather then here in Vendors.

After discussion with the Administrators, it was determined that posting individual used items for sale is a violation of the Terms Of Service.
You are allowed to state that you have used items for sale and list a link to your website, but you can’t list individual items separately. I have spoken to the administrators and that will be the rule enforced going forward.
For clarification: You can post in Vendor announcements something like "Please visit our website to see our selection of used and consignment gear." With a link to the website, however, you cannot post a listing of that gear.
Thanks for understanding.

Please Read - Clarification of Policy for Product Announcements
After a group discussion the following policy is now active:
If you have new products, please post a photo or two of the new product in an announcement thread for that product when the thread is created. (More than that is considered advertising, not an announcement.) If you have your own site you may provide a link in your sig line. You may say further details are available on your site.
You may continue to reply to direct questions about the product in the thread, but adding additional information without being requested is not to occur, as this is thread bumping.

This forum is for vendor's to create threads in per the forum guidelines and regular users can reply to those posts. Regular users are to use the appropriate main forums to create threads concerning any questions/issues/reports.
